You wouldn't believe how many singers have had a go at it. My favourite remains the Jeff Buckley version, but John Cale, Rufus Wainwright and KD Laing have also done interesting interpretations on the theme.
Anyway, I thought Kate's version pretty good- despite that fact that it's very much a man's song
I collect versions of this song. A lot of people including my best friend cite the Jeff Buckley version as THE one. I prefer Rufus Wainwright's, but I can recognise Buckley's absolute talent. My current favourite that I'm going to post to my blog when I get a minute is the Welsh version by Brigyn.
